    Summary

    Merlin always knew destiny had something against him, some sort of grudge maybe, for always trying to thwart it or stop it in its tracks. He just didn't know, didn't think, to be careful of destiny retaliating at him. He was too busy watching out for Arthur he forgot that he was always in just as much danger, if not more. Well... he wouldn't forget anymore if he got out of this alive. If Arthur would let him get out of this alive.

    Summary

    Merlin thought he was doing the right thing. He thought telling Arthur that magic had no place in Camelot he'd be able to save his friend. When he sees the mistake he made, he leaves Camelot. Unable to hand the burden of what he had condemned his friends to. Arthur, Gwen, Gaius, and the Knights of the Round Table seek out the Druids to find out everything they can about Merlin and his magic in hopes they can find their friend and bring him home.

    (Merlin left letters behind explaining why he had to leave. A majority of the story will be centered on everyone except Merlin as they learn about him and his sacrifices)

    Takes place after Season 5 episode 5, The Disir.

    Trigger warning!! References to attempted suicide, please be aware.

    Summary

    The world was strange. There was a time where almost every other person had some sort of magical ability. Whether it was making toys hover through the air or helping bathwater to stay warm longer. But some had abilities that scared those without. Their vibrant colored hair showed the extent of their powers. While most people would have a few streaks here and there, or color that was only at their nape, it was common knowledge that they held some innate skill with magic. There were many who didn’t know what their ability was, but they held a colored streak that would fade as they grew older. It tended to manifest in many in their adolescence; their magical abilities. If they studied to try to figure out what their ability was, if they didn’t know, then their hair would brighten the closer they got to figuring it out. Once their color settled, their eyes would glow a brilliant gold color when they applied their magic. It was breathtaking to behold.

    Summary

    “If you’re going to kill Merlin, you’ll have to kill me, too."

    "And me, sire," Lancelot said, stepping forward.

    “You have magic, too?”

    Lancelot blinked. And, well...that wasn’t exactly where he thought they were going with this. But he had decided long ago that he would tell any lie necessary to protect Merlin--and if there was ever a time to lie, this was it.

    Summary

    They say not to put all your eggs in one basket, but Arthur only has one basket. He must somehow convince Camelot that Merlin - and, by extension, magic - deserves to be free on the actions of the warlock alone. Only, his subjects are difficult to sway, and his nobility harder. Meanwhile, he must battle his growing feelings for his manservant - and the fact that he doesn't only love Merlin.

    In which Merlin must fess up to everything he's ever done in front of all of Camelot, and he has to hope that his good deeds outweigh his evil ones. It has all come down to this.

    Summary

    “You are accused of sorcery. By the laws of Camelot, I hereby sentence you to death,” the king’s voice was cold, and quite frankly, bored, as he sentenced yet another sorcerer to die by the pyre...

    ...“He’s not really Merlin, he doesn’t really have magic! If you kill him you’ll make a huge mistake!”...

    ...The crown prince of Camelot would be burned at the pyre by his own father. For conjuring harmless butterflies. By accident. And no one would ever even know that Arthur would really be dead...

    Summary

    And then there was Arthur, not shouting at him like everyone else, but smiling, and mouthing, ‘Come on, dove’.

    Or something like that. Merlin wasn’t that good at lip-reading and Arthur’s lips could be distracting. Maybe he wasn’t mouthing ‘dove’, he was saying… Well, not love, obviously… He was saying come! Like, repeating that Merlin should be joining them.

    Yes. Absolutely.

    Five times Merlin is called dove and one time he can't side-explain it, no matter how much he tries.

    Summary

    Summary

    When Leon's father's health takes a turn for the worse, Arthur seeks out a magical being who may be able to help him. However, during their search, Arthur and the knights learn a dark secret about Merlin's past, his hidden family, and life-altering connections to Camelot years before he ever went.

    Basically a kind of dark, very relationship-based story about Merlin's magic being revealed. And Merlin is a badass.

    Summary

    After months of awkward tension, and an excruciating few weeks of Prince Arthur being a royal prat, Merlin has decided he's done. He's not going to spend anymore time with his royal highness than he has to.

    So, why is Arthur fighting for him to stay around? And why is he being dragged on some diplomatic mission to placate a sketchy lord? Why is Arthur suddenly being nice again? Why does Arthur look so good in that red cape? – wait... what?

    Summary

    Merlin had thought he didn’t know what he was getting into when he cleared the air and agreed to stop hating Mordred, but it turned out the knight, not the warlock, was the one who was completely unprepared for what it would mean to be considered Merlin’s friend.
